Bright eclectic atmosphere. Friendly and welcoming service. Delicious Eggs Benedict, with ham and not Canadian bacon. Excellent Bloody Mary. Great view right on the Ohio River across from the scenic bluffs if Kentucky. Super friendly town.

We went on a Friday afternoon and was able to try the chicken Marsala that tasted bland and a cheese steak sandwich that was just ok. Overall it was nothing special for the price.

We arrived with a party of 8, having called ahead 30 min. They were ready for us. Everyone had something different and all the food was great. Enjoyed the Bourbon Apple pie for dessert. Great view of the Ohio River from the front and great location on main street of New Richmond. Parking on the street.

I used to live in New Richmond so passing through we decided to stop and have dinner. Was pleasantly surprised with a nice wine list and interesting menu selection. Found the spinach sauté on rice good but needing salt. My boyfriend had Cesar salad. Enjoyed it but found the chicken a bit dry. The owner was so friendly and sat... More

Bob Lees, the owner of the Front Street Cafe never fails to please. The restaurant has been in Bob's family for over 100 years, but I'm sure its a 100 times better than it was then.From spicy Pasta Lafayette to meatloaf better that Mom made. and great deserts, there is something to please all but the most finicky. Specials, the... More

Service was a little slow so good thing we were in no hurry. Food was good for the price. Great view of the Ohio in a town with interesting history. Nice stop for a bite and be sure to spend some time in the town to soak up some of what it has to offer.

Thank Norma S

A quaint cafe & bistro set along the banks of the Ohio River in the historic village of New Richmond, Ohio, the Front Street Cafe began as an idea to bring the people of New Richmond, Anderson Township, and other surrounding towns together to chat, have coffee, sandwiches, and other baked goods while peacefully looking over the Ohio River and Kentucky hills.

But like the town of New Richmond and Front Street itself, the cafe has evolved, adding delicious dinner entrees from our in-house chef de cuisine Damien Laughton, a fully-stocked bar serving popular beers, wines, and spirits, a stage for our live backyard musical performances, and an outdoor grill for summertime barbequing.

Stop by for a hot panini sandwich, juicy ribeye steak, pan-seared seafood special, a slice of BonBonerie's Opera Cream Cake, or a cup of freshly brewed coffee or latte, and stay for live music, great views, and warm hospitality!
